East Central Europe in Exile Awarded PAHA Prize - Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is very pleased to announce that East Central Europe in Exile, edited by Dr Anna Mazurkiewicz, has received the Oskar Halecki Prize from the Polish American Historical Association.

The Polish American Historical Association is a non-profit, tax-exempt, interdisciplinary organisation devoted to the study of Polish American history and culture. Founded in 1942 as part of the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America, PAHA became an autonomous scholarly society in 1948. As an affiliate of the American Historical Association, PAHA promotes research and publication of scholarly materials focused on Polish American history and culture and their European origins.

The Oskar Halecki Prize is an annual award presented by the Polish American Historical Association in recognition of an important book or monograph on the Polish experience in the United States.

The PAHA said of Dr Mazurkiewicz’s books:

"This outstanding two-volume work takes up an extremely significant area of research in the broad field of Polish American studies, namely the experience of emigration and resettlement in a new homeland. The books include contributions by thirty-eight scholars from North America and Europe that examine aspects of both the Polish emigration and settlement experiences, along with those of other peoples from East Central Europe. Dr Mazurkiewicz’s effort makes an inestimable contribution to scholarly research and knowledge in the important field of emigration studiesand with special attention to the experiences of peoples who are all too often overlooked in discussions of this subject."

The author, Dr Anna Mazurkiewicz, said:

"I welcomed the decision of the Polish American Historical Association to bestow the 2015 Oskar Halecki Prize to the “East Central Europe in Exile” volumes with a great deal of satisfaction and joy. I am honoured by the fact that the Board of this prestigious scholarly association took into consideration edited volumes devoted to the study of transatlantic migration and resettlement which presented the Polish experience in a larger, regional context. The efficient cooperation with Cambridge Scholars Publishing allowed for these volumes’ prompt publication in an attractive form. I am sure that, together with the books’ wide distribution, Cambridge Scholars’ work contributed to the volumes’ success."
